    ok, so i have had this wireless network, it is secure, and the router i have is WRT54G, and everything was working perfectly fine, when all of a sudden the network started kicking me out. I can get back on but from time to time, my speed goes from 54mbps, to 48, 38, 24, and it will go up too, but sometime i just get disconnected. I just don't know what to do. If it helps the Cisco Systems light on the front is lite up as orange.

    try unplugging the router and modem for 10 seconds.
    plug the modem in 1st, then the router.

    i thought the orange lite meant the router is ready, i have the same one.

    Not sure if you have DSL or Cable for ISP but have you isolated the issue to your wireless by just connecting directly to your service modem? If it's DSL it could be a filtering issue. Another thing might be the channel. You could be getting RF interference. Try moving the channel off 6 if that's where it is. I usually go to 7 or 11.

    This has the classic signs of wireless interference. First step would be to change channels on the router. For the US, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 as my first choices.

    Because of the disconnects I agree with John, but also ...

    One time I had the same symptoms (except for the disconnects) when I used a driver directly from Intel (for the integrated 2200bg). Getting the correct driver from my PC manufacturer's web site fixed the problem.
